Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Laguna Niguel

September 30, 2015

Given the weather in Laguna Niguel, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

Here’s a quick and basic breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Laguna Niguel or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America usually lives with warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps manage both your cooling and heating needs in one system. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
  • Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.

Ensuring your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is best for you?
